Like I stated a few Posts above...
Microsoft it would seem are doing a splendid job of keeping People of Windows 8 by themselves, and need no further help from the like of the Free Software Foundation.
To the Micro-Shrills, before ya'all down-vote me in you knee-jerk reactionary flames. Just answer me One very simple question first.
If Microsofts vision of the TIFKAM is sSOo great and wonderful, why is it that no One outside of Redmond has picked up on it yet? Ok I think we can all agree that Tablet Lite (i.e. Windows RT), is a joke so we'll gloss over that for a sec. Perhaps they'll have more luck with all those Ultrabooks that we've been hearing so much about lately. Its hardly to be marvel at the fact that Windows Phone is the best selling Mobile OS EVER!!! with a Market share of only (and let us be generous here!) 3% outta the whole 100% spit between Google, and Apple.
Clearly the Public (e.g. The Joe Average who isn't paid off in Software, much less Money), are just to dim to grasp this "greatness" of yours, and simply want no tuck with it. Its time to face facts that Microsoft have finally lost the plot guys. Nobody with any sanity left to 'em will touch the TIFKAM. Office365 is doomed to utter failure. And most People are now slowly getting the hint that its time to move on.
Enjoy Windows XP for another Year, and kiss it goodbye. Windows 7 will be right behind it soon enough. If you really think Microsoft will win this game of "We'll shove TIFKAM down everyones Throat till they suck on it!" Is ever gonna work out for them, then you are even bigger idiots then the clearly certifiable inmates in Redmond.
No one who has been with Microsoft since Windows 95 (or before!), all the way up through Windows 7, is ever gonna accept Microsoft Office as a SaaS ONLY! And Tossing its entire User-base (i.e. Desktop w/Mouse & Keyboard), for the wonderful new World of touchy-feely is clearly also insane. How the Hell they plan on selling this shit to the Corporates is beyond my comprehension.
But, please if you must down vote, hit on some of these points will ya?
